An Aug. 6 WorldNetDaily article reports that "WND White House correspondent Les Kinsolving is returning to the presidential press briefings this week after a one-on-one conference with White House Press Secretary Tony Snow – ending Kinsolving's 'boycott' of the daily press sessions brought on by what he considered Snow's disrespectful treatment of him." (Yes, the word "Kinsolved" is used in a front-page promo for the article.) Missing, of course, is the full context of the dispute.

As we've detailed, the crux of the dispute was that Snow accused Kinsolving of having "twisted" his words in WND articles. There's no mention of that here -- indeed, WND has never addressed that issue.

Instead, the article states: "Kinsolving and Snow reached an agreement during a phone conversation, after which an aide to Snow told Farah 'Tony is very fond of Les and holds him in high personal regard.'" We suspect that the aide said a lot more about Kinsolving than that.

Thus, WND and Kinsolving continue their overall dishonesty about the dispute. Can someone who does that really be held in "high personal regard" by Snow?
